Rep. Lamar Smith is using a new term to describe the mainstream media and the Democratic Party, arguing that both have become almost indistinguishable from each other.

“The media and Democrats are so close in association and so close in their philosophical views that we might as well use one word to describe both, and that’s ‘Mediacrats,’” the Texas Republican, founder of the House Media Fairness Caucus, told the Washington Examiner in an interview Sunday.

Mr. Smith said the media’s treatment of President Trump should be enough to strip them of their “mainstream” status.
